Headless Elephants

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 7/29/2014 7:23:17 AM

Last week, amid alarm bells going off in Gaza, Ukraine, and on the Texas border, and while he golfed and attended campaign fundraisers, President Barack Obama saw his approval rating as measured by Gallup drop to 39 percent. Some 54 percent of the venerable polling firm’s respondents registered active disapproval of the president’s job performance, an indication that America is coming to a consensus around the idea that Obama is a failure in office. This comes with a flurry of mainstream media reports speculating that Obama has checked out of his job, and a growing acceptance of the narrative that the

Comments:
I do not think the base will forgive Mississippi, which showed Republicans can not be trusted if they do take the Senate. I will vote accordingly.

The Tea Party in quite intact and it is the GOP that is missing part of their anatomy, but I don´t think it´s their head.

FTA: "Republicans need to take back the Senate, and they need to take it back with candidates who are both competent legislators and principled conservatives".

Doesn´t this sentence from the article say it all. It has never been more important to vote out all the Rinos who are not competent and not principled. If they were Conservatives, we would not be in such great political danger.

The RNC is done. They can get their money from big business and the Chamber of Commerce. Those are the only people they care about.

As for the rest of us, WTP now support individual candidates with what little money we have left that hasn´t been stolen and wasted by the politicians in DC.

The GOP has a Central Committee, just like the Communist Party in all socialist democracies. They collect donations and tell the rest of the party their preferred candidates. Their problem is that the grass roots are ignoring them. Underfunded grass roots candidates are beating their candidates in primaries. And now the immigration surge, which they have been paid to accommodate, is hugely unpopular. We don´t need them. We will vote for the GOP candidate over a Dem but we will give our contributions directly to the candidate and make known we will throw them out in the next election if they listen to the party instead of us.

The RNC considers Conservatives like me bigger threats than the dems.

I want a smaller federal government with significantly reduced spending. I want the EPA tightly constrained or even eliminated. I want our energy sector to be freed to get us to energy independence and the Keystone pipeline approved. I want the IRS leashed and subject to MAJOR oversight. I want political agents in the IRS FIRED. I want our Country´s border to mean something. I want the current waves of ILLEGAL immigrants OUT, now. I am willing to consider some path to citizenship for illegals that have a long term presence in the country and a clean record. I want government OUT of the business subsidy business, of ALL kinds including agriculture. I want a vast reduction in government regulation of business. I want the free market to be free again. I want law and fact, instead of emotion and whim, to reign in our courts. I want the US to have a strong and respected presence on the world stage. I want us to be rock solid allies of Israel.

The RNC stands for almost NONE of this and talks about any of it like it distasteful. Yet these are the elements of the foundation of our society and country. The RNC has become as unprincipled as the dems. Perhaps headless would be better that an RNC with brain cancer.

Yeah, OP, nobody else but the cheerleaders are allowed to have opinions that they ´have told us, over and over´.

So please stop posting any more opinions on separate threads, unless they tout the GOP establishment, call Palin and Limbaugh entertainers, or slam Cruz and the Tea Party. In those cases, your repeated opinions are more than welcome.

I will consider my vote for the Republican Senate candidate as a vote AGAINST Harry Reid.
Getting him out will be sweet. THEN I intend to hold my Senator´s feet to the fire for his/her entire term. I will be keeping score, and if this person does NOT stand for my conservative views, he will be replaced at the next election.

In-State Tuition for Illegals Likely to

AUSTIN, Texas -- Last weekend, Texas Governor Rick Perry defended his support for a 2001 bill that granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants for Texas colleges and universities. As reported by Breitbart Texas, in a keynote conversation at The Texas Tribune Festival, Perry was asked directly by Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith if he now believed the bill should be overturned, and Perry answered "No," also commenting, "I still think in 2001 it was the right thing to do in the state of Texas." After Perry´s remarks hit the news, public reaction was swift. Breitbart Texas´ article on

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

The result is his completely missing the point as regards what´s most likely happening on the ground in 2014: Four Reasons the G.O.P.’s National Edge Isn’t Translating to Senate Races.

Last Wednesday (Sept. 17), former George W. Bush political guru and current Republican Super PAC king Karl Rove took to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to exhort that paper’s readers to make it rain to the benefit of Republican senatorial candidates with just six weeks left before Election Day. “…[R]educing the Democratic cash advantage will tip the needle in the GOP´s direction,” Rove said. “That will only happen if Republicans open their wallets to candidates whom they may have never met, and, if they live in a battleground state, they clear their calendars to volunteer to identify and get

AUSTIN, Texas -- Over the weekend, Texas´ two senators traded barbs over the last year´s government shutdown in a pair of speeches delivered at The Texas Tribune Festival, a conference at the University of Texas at Austin organized by the online media outlet. Senator John Cornyn delivered a keynote address on Saturday morning and Senator Ted Cruz followed later that afternoon. Both made remarks placing blame for partisan gridlock on Democratic leadership of the Senate, but it is their comments on the shutdown that are generating the buzz.

John Koskinen has failed the IRS and the American people. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified last week about the missing emails lost forever due to computer failures. When questioned about any more crashes or computer issues recently, Koskinen told the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee that “Hard drive crashes continue as we speak.” Can someone please buy the IRS reliable computers and a backup system? Don’t forget, the IRS canceled the back-up contract service that they had for six years, shortly after Lois Lerner’s original hard drive went missing.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

How can Republicans recapture the U.S. Senate from Harry Reid and the Democrats? A new Politico poll points to a winning strategy — if GOP leaders have the courage to use the remaining seven weeks to nationalize the elections around one game-changing issue. Under the headline, “GOP has edge on immigration in midterms,” Politico offered a surprising review of battleground House and Senate races. The generally liberal publication found that two-thirds of likely voters disapprove of President Obama’s handling of the issue — and that even independent voters trust the GOP over the Democrats on the subject.

According to the New York Times, Obama senses the possibility of Syria firing on US planes as they conduct ISIS strikes in Syria. It is likely somebody will shoot at them, and it is likely that who did the shooting will be up for debate. “He made clear the intricacy of the situation, though, as he contemplated the possibility that Mr. Assad might order his forces to fire at American planes entering Syrian airspace. If he dared to do that, Mr. Obama said he would order American forces to wipe out Syria’s air defense system, which he noted would be easier

A GOP lobbyist who has been advising House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) is urging Republicans to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation "pronto" if they gain control of Congress after the midterms. Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against President Barack Obama´s executive amnesty, John Feehery argued that Republicans must not oppose Obama and ram through amnesty if they control Congress. "They should pass immigration reform, pronto," he wrote in Tuesday´s The Hill. Though former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted because of his support for amnesty, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has reportedly told Obama that there

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made earlier this month, in a speech that critics have said was unnecessarily confrontational toward a Middle Eastern Christian group. (snip) Cruz earned the ire of many conservatives for his speech to a group called "In Defense of Christians." During those remarks, Cruz made a point to say he would not support groups in the Middle East who are not pro-Israel.  He walked off the stage to a chorus of boos after eventually telling the crowd he wouldn´t "stand with" them if they did not "stand

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president.

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

"Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
